Dimmock triumphs in Helen Holm

2014 04 Annabel Dimmock Helen Holm

England’s Annabel Dimmock carded a final round 73 to record a wire to wire victory in the Helen Holm Scottish Open Strokeplay Championship at Troon.


Dimmock, who is just 17-years-old, was five shots ahead after rounds of 70 and 71 over Troon Portland and she had increased her lead to six by the time she reached the turn in the final round, played over Royal Troon and was able to hold off the challenge of Scottish Girls’ champion and Troon Ladies’ member Connie Jaffrey to take the title.
“Charley has been great for girl’s golf and she has proved that there isn’t too big a jump between the top amateurs and the professionals. But getting the timing right is the key to turning professional.” - Annabel Dimmock

Jaffrey, who is also 17, was delighted with her runner-up finish. “That was my best ever round over Royal Troon and I played really steady,” she said. “I went out thinking I had a chance to win and I got close. This rates as the best result of my career.”

For Dimmock, who is currently on a gap year, the goal is to make the great Britain and Ireland team to defend the Curtis Cup at St Louis Country Club in June.

Charley Hull, who has already won the Ladies’ European Tour and helped Europe win the Solheim Cup in 2013, has also inspired her. She said: “Charley has been great for girl’s golf and she has proved that there isn’t too big a jump between the top amateurs and the professionals. But getting the timing right is the key to turning professional.”
